Merry Christmas

Yesterday was a busy day and so no blogging. I had to get the green elephant out of the front-room, it was either that or put branches on it and decorate it. It's a long story that I'll relate on another occasion.

Newfoundland is pissed and rightly so. While Paul Martin was wooing Muammar Khaddafi, Danny Williams, Premier of Newfoundland was pulling down the Canadian flag from all provincial facilities. "Up side the head Bozo!" Get your ass back home before you don't have one to come home to. I know what your thinking, "Get real, this is Canada.” Ya, well remember, in years gone by there were many instances of a leader leaving his country only to find that he was persona non grata upon his return, if he had the nerve to. Wouldn't that be a hoot, a coup in Canada? Imagine this Globe and Mail headline. ”The Salvation Army seizes power and federal forces are holed up in the Diefenbunker and suing for peace.” What a pathetic and global embarrassment. Know what? Newfoundland could declare independence and Ottawa couldn't do a damn thing about it. All federal facilities could be taken over in a matter of hours and then what would Ottawa do? Call the UN for help? During the Trudeauopean years A few thugs in Quebec calling themselves the FLQ kidnapped British Trade Commissioner James Cross and Quebec Justice Minister Pierre Laporte in what came to be known as the October Crisis of 1970. Trudeau who had nothing but contempt for the military invoked the War Measurers Act, not done since the First World War. The outcome was that Laporte was murdered and Cross released unharmed for a free military provided plane ride to Cuba. If a few thugs could have that much power then just think of the power of a half a million justifiably angry Newfoundlanders now.

Newfoundland could make a deal with any number of countries to the tune of," Give us some back-up for fishing concessions." Beats Ottawa giving it all away anyway. Newfoumdland was suckered into Confederation, Newfoundland wasn't conquered, wasn't won by Canada on the battlefield, there is enough evidence to suggest that if taken to the world court( that Ottawa is so enamored of) they would lose and we could go back to being our own country. Look at places like Bermuda or the Bahamas who are doing damned well and look at us with all the resources and untold more not yet discovered. Smallwood sold Newfoundland down he river for his own self aggrandizement and gave our resources to Ottawa to use as bargaining chips to benefit the Canadian Cognoscenti. “How do I really feel?” you ask? Well it’s Christmas and so I’m full of the milk of human kindness and wish all people out there a very Merry Christmas.
